The Michigan Military Technical & Historical Society put together a great event featuring a woman who was a secretary during the Nuremberg Trials. The Nuremberg Trial has been described as "the greatest trial in history." They were a series of military tribunals, held by the Allied Forces after World War II between November 20, 1945, and October 1, 1946.

Hertha "Hedy" Sheridan was 17 when she was hired as a secretary at the trial. Ms. Sheridan is a resident of Fraser and gave her interview and answered questions to a full house.
